ABERDARE INTELLIGENCE. PiioposED NEW LIBRARY AND READING ROOM.âOn Tuesday night a public meeting was held in the Tem- perance Hall, to consider the subject of a public library and reading-room. Dr Evan Jones presided, and in his opening remarks gave a brief history of the movement. In moving a resolution to the effect that such an insti- tution was desirable, Mr D. Davis, Mresyffynon, ob- served that he had hope of the movement, because it seemed to be taken up by the working class. Unless the latter took an interest therein contemplated,the in- stitution could not be successful or valuable. The work should be done by themselvcsâif not entirelyâ yet with the help others would gladly render. Mr J. Johns explained that tllO had oeen coveted for pre- sentation to Canon Jenkins, as a token of respect, by the various friendly societies and tradesmen of the neighbourhood. The Canon drc''ned to receive the money, but would devote it to any good purpose the committee should approve. A public fountain was at first talked of, but at length the idea of a public library and reading-room was revived, towards which the money is to be devoted. The Rev. J. Farr, Dr Price, and others addressed the meeting. Rev. J. Joseph George reminded the audience that a small institution of the kind already exited in the town, and that the new movement would damage, if it d'd not ruin the old institution. Mr Johns rented that the committee of the present movement would be prepp-ed to adopt the old one with all advantages and disadvantages. It wrs ultimately resoved to appeal to all classes for suppor j. The only eligible spot in the town for the pui lose has been secured, and is to be invested in the names of Mr D. Davis,J.P., Maesyffynon, and Mr R. H. Rhys, J.P. Plas Newydd. A vote of tHn'ts to the chapman con- eluded the meeting.
